The centre is looking for volunteers to commit to 2 – 3 hours on a weekly or fortnightly basis to support the clinicians and staff:

Administration Volunteer – to assist with tasks such as monitoring and maintaining the supply of patient booklets, and collating patient information packs.

Volunteer Driver – to provide transport for patients who find it difficult to access the centre for appointments at the Thursday leg clinic.

Pool Car Assistant Volunteer – to monitor the service history of three vehicles, take them for checks as required, monitor and maintain stock levels of the vehicle equipment and ensure a good level of cleanliness.

Volunteering can be very rewarding, whether it be a chance to try something new which may lead to a career change or the personal satisfaction of knowing you are helping patients.

You will be supported as a volunteer by staff at the Centre and the volunteer coordinator. Full training is provided and all out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
